The existing Wing Headquarters HQ Facility Building 316 does not meet current antiterrorismforce protection ATFP guidelines for setback distances from existing roadways and parking areas. Building 316, constructed in 1975, is still in relatively good condition. However, the need for administrative space within the Wing has grown over the years and the large demand for this space has forced the base to encroach upon other existing facilities such as the Visiting Quarters. Pittsburgh IAP ARS proposes to construct a 30,490-square foot ft2 Wing HQ Facility, south of the existing Consolidated Club Building 110, and associated parking lots on the west and east-southeast sides. Coalition Avenue would be rerouted and Rocky Lane eliminated to meet ATFP guidelines. After construction of the proposed Wing HQ Facility, Wing staff in Buildings 208 and 210 would be relocated to the proposed Wing HQ Facility and Building 316. After the Wing staff has been relocated to these facilities, Buildings 208 and 210 each comprising 12,970 ft2 would be demolished and the sites would be backfilled, graded, and seeded to allow for future growth. When these buildings are demolished, the backup generator outside of Building 208 and the Main Base Water Metering Facility Building 119 would be relocated or incorporated into the proposed Wing HQ Facility. An Environmental Assessment EA has been prepared to evaluate the Proposed Action and the No Action Alternative. Resources that are considered in the impact analysis are air quality, noise, safety, geological resources, water resources, infrastructure, and hazardous materials and waste management. The EA will be made available to the public upon completion.
